And yet, this is, by far, the BEST security method in use for securing planes. Forget about no fly lists and all the other security theater. If you get on a plane without the means to interfere with the flight, you aren't a security threat. It doesn't matter who you are or what you've done in the past. If you can't, you won't.
Chaffetz's amendment says that whole body imaging "may not be used" as the primary method of passenger screening, and that passengers have the right to refuse it and "shall be offered a pat-down search" as an alternative. It also prohibits the storage or transmission of the whole-body images after they're no longer necessary for screening. "Whole-body imaging is exactly what it says; it allows TSA employees to conduct the equivalent of a strip search," Chaffetz said in a statement after the vote. "Nobody needs to see my wife and kids naked to secure an airplane."
